I've wanted a Scrabble ring for ruddy ages now, but every time I see them I think to myself: '£3.99? I could make them for so much cheaper than that.'
So I have.
And here's how you can too:
1) Buy some cheap Scrabble sets. I found mine in charity shops (for £2) and at car boot sales (25p).
As you can see, these are all different colours, so if you're planning on making words out of your Scrabble rings then make sure you're wearing all the same colour.
2) Buy some adjustable rings. I bought mine from Topping Crafts on eBay because they were the cheapest at £5.76 and had free delivery (all the way from Hong Kong-a-tron).
3) Get some good glue.
I've used UHU contact adhesive because it's designed especially for glass and fibre, which works perfectly with the glossy surface of the Scrabble tiles.
4) Lay newspaper (or whatever) down, and get gluing!
It's really that simple.
It was so simple that I was inspired to try out some other ideas. And I found some mis-matched domino pieces in my favourite British Red Cross for only £1...
A few people have asked me if I'd like to sell them.
And I would.
But I know how cheap they are to make and how annoyingly expensive they are so I'll sell them for only £1.50. If you'd like to buy a Scrabble or Domino ring then please email me at: email@example.com..
Or if not, I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and have made your own!
